I cannot stand Molina personality wise, but that dude was in some serious pain last night and still changed the game offensively. His first at bat, he was wincing and taking deep breaths (back symptoms), then promptly took a good pitch up the middle for a single. Don't worry about today, there is this little historical problem the Reds have getting backup catchers out. They can be hitting on the interstate and hit a homer and have three hits in a start against the Reds (Henry Blanco is my favorite example, but then Eric Kratz provided most recent evidence).
Freese's wrist did not look good at all. Probably day to day if xrays negative, but it makes you wonder if it won't be one of those nagging things the rest of the season for him that saps some power without full use of both wrists.
